Libor Kozak: Finalised move to Aston Villa on deadline day

The Czech Republic international concluded a near £6million move to England on Saturday, and Tare wished him well, adding that they helped the move go through.

"Kozak to Aston Villa? He had asked to go away and we satisfied him by lowering our financial demands," Tare told Lazio Style Radio.

"I thank him for what he gave to Lazio, he is one of the most professional players I've ever known."

Lazio allowed Kozak to leave, even if they failed to bring in their own striker targets, with their main miss being Galatasaray's Burak Yilmaz.

"We tried to the end to bring Yilmaz to Lazio but what happened yesterday [Monday] is very serious," explained Tare.

"His agent made us out-of-the-world requests and so he changed the player's fate. We also had an alternative to Yilmaz, and it was (Juventus' striker, Fabio) Quagliarella but when we reached an agreement with Juventus, coach Antonio Conte stopped the player's departure."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
